Reusing the Tabbed Properties [message #335765] Tue, 28 April 2009 09:47 Go to next message

Hello,

I would like to reuse the look and feel of the tabbed properties view in my
Eclipse plugin.
I need to create this control in a composite (and not at the properties
view's place).

I am not sure that this control has been designed for this kind of use...

Maybe I should simply try to copy the SWT part of the tabbed properties...?
Where can I find this?
If you have some good advices on the best approach to reuse/reproduce the
tabbed properties style, I would really appreciate your help :-)

Thanks for all,

J.

If you just want the L&F maybe use Eclipse Forms?

Sorry I was not clear enough, when I'm talking about the L&F I'm just
talking about the horizontal tabs from the tabbed properties view.
I really like this design, but how could I reuse it in a shell or something?

According to me there is no such horizontal tabs in the Forms API.
Any ideas?

As far as i know there is no API for what you are looking for, the
horizontal tabs are custom drawn.

Use the Source Luke!
